Corps à corps
How human bodies are represented in glass arts (1880-2015)
From the first pâte de verre works at the end of the nineteenth century up to the recent sculptural creations, the human body has inspired many glass artists. Using a host of techniques such as blowing, moulding, enamelling and incising, the body can be represented in a figurative, abstract or fragmented manner ; it can suggest movement, the passage of time, or desire ; it can represent a style or an era. Through selected works from 1880 up until 2015 by sixty international artists, the new Glass Museum exhibition would like to invite you to discover how the human body can be represented in glass arts.
L’exposition a été rendue possible grâce aux soutiens financiers de la DRAC Haute-Normandie, la Région Haute-Normandie et le Conseil Général de l'Eure.
